Rain spoils the day at Hove

No play was possible in Sussex Sharks' first home Twenty20 match of the season against Middlesex Crusaders at Hove.

Persistent rain all day ruined any chance of a start and umpires Vanburn Holder and Ian Gould made their decision at 3:50pm.

It at least gets both teams off the mark following defeats in their opening games, Sussex having lost to Essex and Middlesex to Surrey.

The washout wrecked Sussex's hopes of attracting a crowd in the region of 5,000, but they are heading towards a 7,000 sell-out for the forthcoming floodlit home matches against Surrey and Hampshire.

Sussex's advanced sales are also a record, with 16,000 tickets already sold and the county will earn more gate revenue from one Twenty-20 match than their entire home programme of six Championship games.
